Jellyfish along UAE coastline

It seems jellyfish are inhabiting our shores once again this year, bringing with them their nasty sting and upsetting holiday makers.

We usually see an influx of jellyfish along the UAE coastline around March/April each year, but this month they seem to have returned in force. We have witnessed probably the largest influx around Palm Jumeirah, particularly around the Crescent. In some places, we have counted dozens of jellyfish lurking within a relatively small area. Due to low flushing in some parts of the Palm, it can take a long time for them to get out of the system.

For further information on our custom made swimming barriers and jellyfish nets (either permanent or removable), please give us a call. We move quickly so your guests don’t have to…

PS – The irony of installing a jellyfish net in jellyfish season was also not lost on us, with our installation team kitted out in full length wetsuits, booties, gloves and hood in 35 degree celsius water.
